Checkers is Rebranding!

Checkers is rebranding to feature a power brand structureAs those who have visited our website in the past few days have no doubt noticed, Checkers is rebranding! It all starts at the top of the page with our new, sleek logo and name: Checkers Safety Group. In 2015, we acquired seven different companies, all bringing different safety solutions to the marketplace, and as such, the “industrial safety products” portion of our name had to be altered. “Safety Group” emphasizes our mission: to provide revolutionary product designs and visionary safety solutions that protect people, assets, and the environment. The change from our yellow logo to our new green one symbolizes our commitment to sustainability, focus on social responsibility, and our continued growth in the safety industry. 

Also new with our rebrand is the addition of our Power Brands. We believe that by marketing our services under four powerful brands with a long history of success we will have even greater marketplace impact. As a result, we will be able to provide even more value to our customers. Our four Power Brands focus on ground level safety solutions.

Checkers Runs the Colfax Marathon!

Colfax marathon cable protectionDubbed “The Ultimate Urban Tour,” the Colfax Marathon has become an annual Denver event ever since it’s inception in 2006. This year, Checkers sponsored three relay teams of five, as well as several individual runners participating in the 5k and half marathon events. While Colorado claims to offer 300 days of sunshine a year, this was not the case on Sunday, as runners woke to a gray sky and cool temperatures. Not that many minded however, as these conditions were ideal for the long race. Team 2 took home the trophy this year, clocking a time of 4 hours and 4 minutes. We are all very proud of them, they did a great job. As the runners traversed the route, we couldn’t help but spot cable protectors. Nearly every relay handoff point featured a cable protection run, crucial to keeping runners safe. The team was able to snap a picture of a cable run in front of Mile High Stadium. Cable protectors are one of our staples, and The Guard Dog® ADA Cable Protector is a great solution for pedestrian applications such as races, as the slope is more gradual than a traditional cable protector, which eliminates trip hazards.

A Turf Disaster Terraplas Could Have Prevented

Turf disaster strikes at AuburnAs summer approaches, so does concert season, and many university stadiums and sporting venues prepare to take advantage of off-season opportunities to collect extra revenue by hosting these events. Auburn University recently hosted a Kenny Chesney concert at Jordan-Hare Stadium and chose to protect the field with a competitor’s product rather than our Terraplas turf protection system. As you can see from the pictures on the right, the results were a literal turf disaster and totally catastrophic for the field. Fortunately, the field was scheduled to be re-sodded anyway, but this is a great example of why quality turf protection matters. Re-sodding turf is an expensive process, that is avoidable with the use of Terraplas. The translucent properties of the High Density Polyethylene ensure that sunlight can still reach the grass, eliminating the yellowing that can be seen in the bottom image of Jordan-Hare. The HDPE construction is extremely strong, and we offer turf protection systems that can support vehicles, such as our TerraTrak Plus. Terraplas is especially vital for non-sporting events hosted during the season. Imagine the scramble to re-sod Jordan-Hare if the Tigers had to play in a week. If you have an upcoming event, don’t forget about your turf!

Terraplas is the name in turf protection. Read more about Terraplas products here!
